Reprisal by Ryan Quinn Flanagan


The kids in the theatre were loud
with their feet up on the seats
throwing popcorn at the back of his head.

So he got up and went and sat in one of their laps
kissing them on the cheeks like they do in
cobblestone Europe.

And the kids ran off.
Nice enough to leave him half a bucket of popcorn
and a one liter pop.

To enjoy with the movie
as it worked its way towards
the end.
